York Bound

If you’re reading this at the moment it was posted, I’m just diving into her majesty’s chariot to go to the York stone carving festival. As with other stone carving festivals I may have mentioned in the past (possibly not on this blog though) its an even for stonemasons from all corners of the globe to compete in a friendly competition. Nothing’s usually at stake as its all for charity but bragging rights are always a good goal!

Each of the masons is given a stone to carve over two days into something that can be auctioned off for charity. I’ll try and get some photos so you can see the kind of things that they do. The standard of the carvings is truly amazing, I’ve never failed to be impressed with the kinds of things these guys and girls can achieve is such a short time.

Crazy Days!

Hi peeps! Didn’t miss me did you? Thought not.

I just thought it was only fair to dive on here and let you know that I’m still alive, have stopped biting my fingernails, have discovered I don’t know how to cut fingernails and have been busy as a loony at work!

I think that’s about it for now but I promise, hand on heart I’ll have something up here for you to read in short order.

In the mean time, please join me in giggling at Charlie Brooker telling us how to broadcast the news. I love this one!
